Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 25 October 2020
Some excellent programmes coming up in October
Sunday 1st November
All Saints' Day falls on this Sunday, and while it is of course the "All Hallows" part referred to in All Hallows Eve, or Hallowe'en, it is in important religious feast for Christians around the world. This particular festivity--a fusion of prechristian pagan celebrations such as our own Samhain with later church teachings--has inspired a plethora of musical output, not the least of which has been centred around the many saints of the church. Together with All Souls' Day, this triduum period known as Allhallowtide lasts from the 31st of October to the 2nd of November. In the musical company of Francesco Veracini, Samuel Scheidt, Phillipe de Vitry and Jean Mouton, Vlad will go door-to-door in search of musical treats to offer you on a truly soulful Vox Nostra.
